this may be a really dumb question for those who know the answer to it, so please don't bust my balls.
i've always heard deadlifts are the best excercise to increase trap mass, but it's never worked for me.
recently, a guy at the gym informed me that i need to cut back on the weight and keep my shoulders blades back instead of letting them extend forward with the weight when i'm going down.
i did try this, it felt really strange, and i had to cut the weight back by more than half. just wanted to confirm this. thanks a lot.
